Glitch Festival is celebrating its 6th year and has grown into Ireland’s foremost digital arts festival. We work to bring the best of digital arts practices to the fore. Glitch Festival brings leading media and technology artists, curators and artist groups together with audiences to draw out connections between art, culture and technology with the aim of fostering greater critical understanding and debate around artist’s interaction, investigation and intersection with technologies.
Gallery 1 | Traces of the Live Event
2 – 11 May
The festival will begin with an experimental, process-driven period where artists will inhabit the white cube space of Rua Red and create work within the context of the space. Artists David Beattie, Cliona Harmey, David Lunney, Richard Forrest and Robin Price are invited to create works that are interactive, reactionary, impulsive, divisive, explosive and political in creation leaving a significant and possibly mystifying residue of what took place. This will take place over two weeks of live, experimental and active making, during which the artists will be present in the space and the public are invited to engage, question and interact with artists and artworks.
Public Opening Times
2 May, 12 – 2: David Beattie
